Oxford: all the fun of the fair

Written by Nasir Hamid on September 28th, 2011

I was really looking forward to St. Giles’ Fair this year, especially because I wanted to do some night photography of the neon lights on film. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate and I didn’t feel like getting soaked in the rain and wind so here are some images from the first day before the weather turned for the worse.
